Smashes, Crashes and Near Misses: The Best of the Records

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Woodstra
The Records may not have been great innovators but they undeniably made some of the best singles of the era. Smashes, Crashes and Near Misses, a 20-track collection, is the definitive proof of the band's generally overlooked brilliance. Anyone interested in power-pop should start here.

    Power Pop Classic

    Picking up the torch where BIG STAR left it lying 10 years prior, and re-igniting it with brilliantly crafted power pop. An essential to any collection wanting to include in it the cream of the crop as it relates to this niche of music. An excellent collection of their very best
